What A Day!

Our morning yesterday, started out with a trip to the vet with our cat, Mopey (it was origingally Hope, until we found out SHE was a HE). He has had respiratory issues since birth, but recently it has gotten really bad. On top of that, he has lost weight and his breath STINKS!!! Our vet, at first, thought that he was in the final stages of Feline Lukemia. Thank God, however, after further examining him, said that he has a serious sinus infection which has almost completely closed off his nasal passages making it extremely hard for him to breathe. That in turn, is causing him to only be able to eat a tiny bit of food at a time. And the stink? Wasn't his breath, but his nose from the infection. So, for the next 6 weeks, monsieur Mopey will be on heaving antibiotics. Hopefully, this will do the trick.

After we got back from the vet's office, my sister called and invited us over for dinner. We had homemade broccoli, cauliflower, and cheese soup, followed by an amazing buffalo chicken wing dip that I forgot to get the recipe for....but I WILL! After that, we were too stuffed to eat dinner of sauteed sausage and mashed potatoes. After dinner it was Cinnamon Bun Scones for dessert....YUMMM!

Here are a few pics from Cath's house.

This first pic is the view from her laundry room. BEAUTIFUL!

This is Squeaky. I am so amazed at how this picture turned out. I LOVE IT!

This is Loki. She is the sweetest thing!

And this, is Cody! Awww!

And here is my niece, Boog. They boys were inside on the computer playing games.What a beautiful way to end our visit.

After dinner, Kiddo and I met Skippy at the plaze in town. Every Friday evening, during the late spring and summer months, our town puts on a free "Concert in the Park" with all different types of music. Last night it was the blues. Here are some of the pictures I took at the plaza. Hmmm....who is that man in that nice looking jacket? LOL That's my SKIPPY MAN! :> )

There are benches provided but some brought their own lawn chairs

Some even packed a cooler of wine and cheese along with a table and cloth like the couple sitting on the right.

There are two swings under the massive pergola. The Hawksbill Creek runs right in front of them. When it is quiet, you can hear the water running.

This young man kept riding around the swings all night. He was so cute, I had to take a picture. His bike was pretty cool too! :> )

As you can see, we had a full day yesterday. We all had such a great time. I am sooo looking forward to next Friday! :> )
